Interview: Taylor Knox of The Golden Dogs
For a guy who started off in this band on bass, Taylor Knox of The Golden Dogs, KILLLLLLS on drums. The bestdrummerintheworld was interviewing Andrew Scott of Sloan (who rules) and Andrew said Taylor Knox IS the best drummer in the world. But I own the dot com part, so I’ll decide.
Most of us have a network of friends or trusted sources who turn us on to new music.
When you interview drummers you dig in bands you dig you get the bonus of getting turned on to the bands these guys dig enough to take on the road with them. So there’s a good chance you (I) will end up liking the opening band.
In the case of The Golden Dogs from Toronto, I loved this band. They were absolutely amazing live. Understatement. Taylor Knox is an amazing drummer, and he calls himself a songwriter.
I swear, those songwriters make the best drummers.
The record Big Eye Little Eye was one of my most listened to records of the year. I hate to compare bands to other bands (mostly because I hate being compared to other bands) but if the Strokes are considered a “big” band, The Golden Dogs should be as big as U2.
Here’s their video for the catchiest song you’re going to hear today.
I edited the talk we had about where our families have cottages in Canada right down the road from each other, but we talk about the band, so here you go.
